NBA & NHL Finals predictions

Instead of making two different threads I just figured I would create one.

Basketball: Well I would love to see the Dallas Mavericks win the championship more then anything but honestly my prediction is Boston Celtics vs Oklahoma City Thunder in the Finals!

Ever since Seattle Sonics is no more I really haven't had a favorite basketball team just kind of been jumping around in between boston, orlando & oklahoma. Just imagine how good Seattle would be today if they would have held onto Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis and still had Kevin Durant!

But then again Ray Allen finally got what he desrved and that was a ring even if it meant going some place else.

Hockey: Well fuck the Dallas Stars completely missed the playoffs... Bummer. With that being said i'll go ahead and predict Detroit Redwings & Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL finals. I'd like to say Pittsburgh takes it all the way but everyone knows how Detroit is when it comes down to the Finals.. Clutch.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Boston Celtics 3-4

Detroit Redwings vs Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2

New Orleans Saints 16-3 Super Bowl Champions 2010!!!!

Super Bowl 2011 preview

(6-3-0) New Orleans Saints......................(3-6-0) Denver Broncos
Dallas Cowboys fucking suck

Really? The Thunder? I don't agree with the Celtics but I can see it happening.

Anyway, I'll take Lakers and Cleveland with Cleveland taking it in 6. I say this trying to be as unbiased as possible because the fan in me really thinks this can be the Mavs year. The last time I thought that they threw away the finals

Wow, there's some seriously delusional predictions in here... I could care less about NHL, but will comment on the NBA.

To the OP, not only will OKC not make it to the finals, they won't make it out of the first round!

I don't think Boston looked nearly as good as Orlando or Cleveland in the East.

Denver has already lost a home game against UT, but I do believe they'll win the first round series. UT is too banged up and shorthanded to sustain.

Dallas will have to face the winner of the PHX/Portland series which I think PHX will win in spite of the fact they've already lost one at home. Without Roy, Portland will run out of gas.

I predict LA wins the second round matchup with Denver, and I think Dallas will win the 2nd round with Phoenix.

That leaves LA and Dallas in the Conference Finals. I won't say for sure that Dallas pulls this one off, but I really do think they have a good chance.

In the East, Cleveland and Boston will meet in the 2nd round and Cleveland will win.

Atlanta and Orlando will meet in the 2nd round and Orlando will win.

Cleveland beats Orlando in the Eastern Conference Finals.

I'm going out on a limb and say Dallas vs. Cleveland in the Finals and Dallas wins! LOL! Ok, Ok, I'm kinda hoping, but it could happen!

It's only because Crosby is the next big thing in hockey.... Also Alexander Ovechkin, look both of them up on youtube or nhl.com cause those two are the future of the sport with out a doubt.

Yeah, seen a LOT of Crosby jerseys. Last Wednesday or Thursday was Penguins day apparently. I heard it on the news. Everyone was urged to wear Pens gear.

I'm not betting money. I'm still owed money from a few on here.

I'll make an avatar bet on OKC not getting out of the first round. Can't really make an avatar bet both.


You do realize OKC is down 2-0 to the #1 team in the NBA, right? Do you know the odds of overcoming that? They don't have the experience or mental toughness it takes to pull out of that hole.

You make it way too easy man. Waaaaaaay too easy. You know, Your avatar.... The picture under your screen name. Jesus.


I don't give two flying shits what Boston is. They WILL lose in the next round. Period. I'm not the one that said Celtics wouldn't make it out of the first round. For that matter, I didn't say OKC wouldn't make it out of the first round, but I do believe that.

I was just pulling your leg man I know what you mean haha.

Well Oklahoma more then likely isn't going to pull it off but I can still hope for the best right? All i'm hoping for is Oklahoma make this a real series and make lakers beat them on the final game 7 if they do win. I don't want to see Oklahoma get walked all over by the Lakers... Good experience for seasons to come.

Who does Boston play in the next round Orlando or something? That would be a toss up honestly if you ask me.

If the Thunder beat the Lakers, which they are capable of doing. I like them to go all the way to the Finals out of the west. Whats more scary is this team is so young and so talented, that they are going to get even better in a few years.

Thunder is going to be a great team for many year to come... Especially with Durant being the face of the franchise sort of like Lebron with Cleavland and Kobe with the Lakers.

I like Durant. He is humble and plays the game with respect. Plus he talks with his game, not his mouth. Durant should be the MVP. I define the MVP as the most valuable to his team. Kobe Bryant has help with Pau Gasol who is an All Star, Derek Fisher, and Andrew Bynum. Lebron James has Shaquille O'Neal, Antwan Jamison, Illgaulskis, Mo Williams. Durant has Russell Westbrook, Harden, and a bunch of young guys that are good but are turnover prone. You take Lebron and Kobe out of their teams, the Lakers and the Cavs would probably make the playoffs. You take Kevin Durant out of the Thunder, they wouldnt win 30 games.

RyanB is a nobody...Has anyone even met him?

The Celts have no heart and 45 year old legs. Miami should have attacked them all series like wade did last night.

The Thunder have won their home games, just as LA has won theirs. LA has the homefield advantage.

I make my bets on the NHL, not NBA sorry. But I did make about 25 bets on the NFL Draft... degen.


BTW It's since not sense.

so fuckin'

OKC won't make it out of the first round. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see them upset the Lakers. They've won their home games, just because the series is tied 2-2 doesn't mean anything. Until they upset the Lakers at home, they're on the losing side of the bracket.

Ok, I missed Dallas and Denver coming out of the first round. Got the rest right. I guess I'm gonna have to pick LA and SA meeting in the conference finals instead with LA going to the finals with Cleveland.
